Bought at Burg Bieren Ermelo Netherlands.

Very dark brown beer, with light brown head, creamy and good lacing. Smell of good coffee, mocca, chocolate and nuts.
Taste has a very big roasty character to it: even a slight tobacco and ash to it. For the rest, bittersweetness.
Mouthfeel is light to medium. Easy drinking, and if you like dark beer, this is a good one. It's not harsh bitterness. it's well balanced and flavoursome.

Appearance: Black with amber highlights. Pours with a moderate head, which settles into a ring.

Smell: Roasty, grainy, a bit of milk, a bit of black coffee.

Taste: A bit sweet and chocolatey at first, with a mild roasty bitterness coming out more toward the finish. Slightly mineral; mild floral hops. Finishes with a balance of sweet and bitter notes.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and easy on the palate.

Notes: A great session stout. Not exceptionally complex, but nicely balanced and very flavorful.
